-election, with their convention set to be gaveled to order in just one hour. first lady michele obama caps the opening night with a speech that will talk about the president's connection with and support for the middle class. a theme that the president himself anticipated earlier today at a rally in norfolk, virginia, where he drew a sharp contrast with his republican rival, mitt romney. >> i mean, think about it. a plan that says we're going to make middle-class families pay for another budget-busting, $250,000 tax cut, for people making $3 million a year or more, that's not really persuasive to most people. >> while the president was delivering that line, mitt romney's been up in vermont this afternoon, working on his powers of persuasion, fine tuning his debate preparations and leaving hatchet man paul ryan to do the dirty work on the campaign trail as today in battleground ohio. >> the biggest threat to medicare is obama care and one of the biggest threats to job creation is obama care. so for the sake of medicare, and for the sake of jobs, we are going to repeal and replace obama care. >> what a line.

to hispanics and to women. the night's headliner michelle obama, she blew the roof off the place. >> at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. >> keynote speaker julian castro touched the crowd with his story of humble beginnings the first hispanic to deliver a keynote speech at the dnc. he talked up the president but delivered a punch to mitt romney. >> i don't think governor romney nent meant any marm. he has no idea how good he's had it. mitt romney quite simply doesn't get it. >> it was a democratic party so speakers served up a lot of red meat. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves. >> women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. maybe 23 cents doesn't sound like a lot to someone with a swiss bank account, a cayman island investment. >> put simply, women in america cannot trust mitt romney. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist for "washington post" and political reporter nick con sore ri. let's talk about michelle obama. it was called a resounding trium triumph. what do you think she accomplished? >>

in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right

on the personal side of her husband. tonight it is michelle obama's time and her turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince people that president obama is likable. check it out. in a recent "washington post" poll, 61% of registered voters said the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. so what does michelle obama need to say tonight to get democrats revved up, convince voters that her husband should get another four years? office? we're going to talk about it, bring in our republican consultant, cnn contributor, alex, and cow c-founder of rebu the dream. good to see you guys both. in person. i love this. cnn grill. likability. you know, alex, you're always talking about i don't have to have a beer with a guy, you know, the economy's really important. but people do want to be able to feel like the person in office gets it, they trust him, they know him well. did he do -- did ann romney do a good enough job last week not to have that be an issue this week? >> i used to work with mitt romney. i always told him if she ever primaried h, i'd vote for her

, talking about what we have done, where we are going and getting out to vote. you saw both michelle obama and the former president bill clinton speak very directly, we forget, this is about getting people out there, the yard signs don't vote, people vote. people vote with or without i.d.s depending on the state they are in. there's a lot of issues raised in conjunction with that, but it was a contrast to tampa which felt at times more like a conference or board presentation. there was a lot of clear sort of detail about why they don't like president obama but there wasn't necessarily as much a call to arms of saying, mitt romney is your man. on joy's point when they totaled up the number of words used, the word obama was used more than romney at both conventions. that's not necessarily bad for the republicans because they have to both convince the country to fire one guy and hire another. >> right. if you don't vote for president obama, the only alternative is, of course, governor romney. leslie, let me ask you this, one could say i disagree with the party, i don't like what was said, i t
